Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 490343
possible bug for python-ldap on RHEL 5.3 x86_64 (code works on i386)
Last modified: 2016-10-10 11:05:31 EDT
Strange issue: Sample code (from python-ldap-2.3.6/Demo/page_control.py) works on RHEL 5.3 i386, but failed on RHEL 5.3 x86_64. It seems it's a platform depended bug.
Below is error msg:

I'll atache a patch.

fix this bug
This bug is still present in RHEL 5.7 - the 64 bit bugs referenced at the mailing list post above still prevent use of LDAP controls on 64-bit platforms.
Can we get the bug acknowledged, at least?
